Here, Home, Hope - A Book Review

I love  having the opportunity to review new things and then sharing them here with you.  As a member of One2One Network, I was recently given the chance to review Here, Home, Hope a novel by Kaira Rouda.  It was just the read I was hoping to have for summer.  I like to read something that's light and easy but that I can also relate to.  This was the book for me.

The book begins with the main character, Kelly Johnson.  Kelly is someone I certainly could relate too.  Dirty little secret......I liked the thought that I'm not the only one battling these issues.  Obviously the writter, Kaira Rouda has thought about them.

Kelly Johnson is turning 40, okay so I'm a little past that but I can totally relate.  She worries, a lot.  Been there, done that.  Just like most women, Kelly's mind is a whirl with thoughts about her marriage, kids, family, frienships, looks and keeping it all together.  In Kelly we can see ourselves a bit.  Trying with all we've got, to make everything look like our life is perfect to the outside world, while secretly struggling with the feelings of insecurity, knowing something is missing.

Kelly comes up with the great  idea of making a list of things to change in her life, as she calls it, her T2C.  I've actually thought of the same thing, well not the name necessarily but this book gives me the desire to implement it.

Kelly and the other characters of the book are so easy to relate to and so funny that you'll find yourself laughing out loud a time or two.  This is a perfect beach read for summer.

Disclosure:  I was provide a free copy of  “Here, Home, Hope,” by One2One Network in exchange for my completely honest review.  Thank you One2One Network.

  1. Thanks for the great review...one of the things I hate most is taking the time to read a book (any kind) and then hating it! :(

    Have a great day girly~
